That would be great. Another opportunity to sync the english audio to the superior Italian video.

I certainly find the colors of the mondo superior, but it has its own inherent problems. Besides the image jumping vertically on nearly every cut as I've mentioned before, the more I watch it the more I notice a lot of strange "warping" in the image, as if they've tried to stabelize it digitally. I think they had a very wrinkled or curled negative and an inferior scanner. Compare the couple of long shots of "shorty Larson" being hanged in the mondo to the new MGM and you'll see the MGM is rock solid stable and the mondo is literally warping and twisting, almost as if there is a heat haze in front of the lens. So really there's no winning with either disc...I would welcome a new transfer and I hope the Italians have taken the 4k image scanned for the MGM (rock solid and beautifully detailed but because its negative no color correction) and applied their own color correction to it - that would be the best of all worlds. (Oh and if they threw in English mono Smiley

I'm optimistic the Italians, who have a history of doing a better job than MGM, will release a superior transfer with correct colours. If the colours are consistent with your youtube link, that would be awesome.

Thanks for the laugh Smiley

here is a review by a guy named Aaron who runs "The Lee van Cleef Blog" http://thebadnet.blogspot.com/2014/06/blu-ray-review-good-bad-and-ugly-4k.html

I've looked through this site occasionally; it has some very cool stuff. I particularly looke dthrough this guy's pics from Los Albaricoques; really awesome.

Anyone visit/post on this blog? Better yet, is this Aaron guy a member of the Leone boards? If not, we should reach out to him and invite him; he hs great shit, great memorabalia, location stuff, etc. etc. I think he'd make a great contribution to the SLWB  Smiley

from IMDb:

So I got hold of a pirated 720p copy of the new GBU 4k remaster from the original camera negative.

And I am quite amazed at how much improvement this is over the 2009 MGM transfer.

The picture is sharper, the color tone and the filmic feel is far more authentic, and even the much-criticized yellow teal adds a sort of natural charm to it.

I believe that Blu-ray.com's highly positive review of the new 4K remaster is spot on. It's very authentic, very sharp, and filled with natural film grain. The yellow teal can get a bit annoying, but that doesn't diminsh the great things about this new 4K transfer. Who knows? The yellow teal may have been close to Leone's own intent. And not only that, scanning from the original 35mm camera negative was a great thing. The picture is fuller, wider, and far sharper than the previous video remasters.

So on a scale of 1-10, I would give this transfer a 9/10, not a 10/10 because of the yellow teal.

That guy seems to think there is a color called "yellow teal."

After reading that post every time I take a piss from now on should I revel on how charming the yellow of my urine is in the toilet bowl?

Ridiculous.
